🔴 As we mark #HumanRightsDay, a devastating new @EURightsAgency Report on #Antisemitism in #Europe underscores how alarming situation has become.

You can read full report, most extensive in years, here: bit.ly/2Qovhjh

➡️ 89% of Jews think Antisemitism is most problematic on the internet & on social media.

➡️ 71% avoid Jewish symbols (e.g., kippah, Star of David, etc) in public things that could identify them as Jewish.

➡️ 28% of respondents have been harassed at least once in the past year, with those being visibly Jewish most effected;

Nov. 11 1918: The last Austro-Hungarian Emperor Charles I signs a proclamation in which he "relinquish(ed) every participation in the administration of the State" marking the end of the 600-year rule of the Habsburgs over #Austria. #TodayInHistory #ArmisticeDay100 #Armistice100
On 13 November, Charles IV issued a similar (Eckartsau) proclamation for #Hungary. In neither declaration did the emperor use the word 'abdication'. Indeed, he tried to reclaim the Hungarian throne twice in 1921. "I did not abdicate, and never will," he wrote to a confidant.
Altogether the losses of Austria-Hungary during #WW1 can be estimated at around 2 million (excluding direct civilian war deaths). #ArmisticeDay100 #ArmisticeDay

Today we release our annual @wiiw_news Autumn #Forecast Report, with macroeconomic projections for #CESEE out to 2020. Below, a thread on the highlights 1/13
#Growth still looks quite good for most, notable upgrades this time for #Poland, #Serbia, #Hungary. But downgrades for several #EU members, plus #Turkey, #Macedonia and #Belarus. 2/13
Over the #forecast period we expect best growth performance in #EUCEE and #WesternBalkans, although both will slow by 2020. Outlook for #CIS & #Ukraine weaker. 3/13

#Hungary’s filed its doomed claim that 2/3rds of MEPs actually voting doesn’t meet requirement of votes cast.
To condemn a Member State for endangering democratic values, EU Parliament motion needs support of a majority of *all* MEPs, and 2/3rds of those actually voting. >
Hungary’s case is first time CJEU has to interpret law on art 7 TEU procedure. There’s a special article - TFEU 269 - for this. >

@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 1. #EU-#Europe before 2000 was OK: Open borders within #EU for EU-citizens, people can live & work (and study) in all EU states (so take great care who joins - went too fast too far East). The seed of destruction came with the #EURO.
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 2. More centralization & #Merkel's #RefugeesWelcome (with the will to enforce mass-#migration on other #EU states) introduce more toxic cancer cells into the #EU!
A common budget (#Macron) & an #EU-army would be the end of true #democracy & #freedom within #Europe!
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 3. The next step would be the likes of #Merkel, #Macron & #Juncker enforcing their will by first witholding money & next send the #EU-army to topple the likes of #Orban in #Hungary.

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13

What the hell is happening between #Hungary and #Ukraine, why are diplomatic tensions rising dramatically?

Thread for CEE&Hungary watchers, and for journalists covering the topic!

bbc.com/news/world-eur…
It all started last year with Ukraine’s new education law requiring more Ukrainian language education for minorities who previously had much bigger autonomy. This ‘reform’ is a tool of Ukrainian nation-building&was primarily aimed at restricting Russian language education.
Collateral damage occurred as Polish, Romanian&Hungarian minorities were affected as well. Poland&Romania managed to solve the situation with Ukraine through negotiations but Hungary went berserk instead. Here’s a very good summary in English by @OSW_eng:

Europe’s strong line against Orbán is a historic moment for democratic unity. Especially for conservatives. #Hungary

A celebratory thread. 1/
Orbán’s Party - Fidesz - is a long-standing member of @EPP , Europe’s main alliance of conservative parties. So is Angela Merkel’s CDU. 2/
As Orbán helmed Hungary towards menacing autocracy, the EPP just kept on paying out more rope. Emboldened, Fidesz became more outrageous. 3/

Why did UK Tories oppose EU broad-based action to defend #Hungary’s democracy? Thread 1/
#Orbán’s popular - but corrupt & racist - regime was charged before Europe’s directly elected Parliament with undermining Hungary’s democracy theguardian.com/commentisfree/… 2/
Conservatives across Europe joined a broad spectrum of the overwhelming majority of MEPs to demand action. (The first time these new powers have been invoked by Parliament) 3/

So schaut aus, die Orbán-Regierung in Ungarn.
Eine Regierung, die gerade angekündigt hat, dass Gender Studies an Universitäten verboten werden.
There are only 2 universities in #Hungary, that award M.A.degrees in gender studies.
Although gender studies has been offered for years by hundreds of universities in Europe and North America, Hung.universities did not offer the discipline until last year
"Just when you think you can't go downhill from where you are: the Hungarian government has just announced a decree to ban gender studies at all Hungarian universities." Open Letter by @alengyel #Hungary facebook.com/freiepresseung… #genderstudies #gender #education

Highlights fro #Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing on foreign interference via social media platforms:

"Election interference from abroad represents an intolerable assault on the democratic foundation this republic was built on" per @SenatorBurr
"It's also important that the American people know that these activities neither began nor ended with the 2016 elections" per @SenatorBurr "Foreign actors continue an aggressive and pervasive influence campaign against the #UnitedStatesofAmerica"
Efforts like those id'd by @facebook "creating events on our streets w/real #Americans unknowingly participating" adds @SenatorBurr

I recently visited #Hungary and went horseback riding in a Vincent van Gogh painting. Wonderful.
On the pic I was actually riding a Lipizzaner, which are famous horses in central Europe with a long tradition in former Habsburg empire.

Next time I hope to visit Spanish Riding school in Vienna.
This was actually my view from top of the horse. How beautiful.

1. As we watch in abject horror at what is happening at the U.S. border here in Europe #Hungary is debating a bill which will:
1. finacially penalise aid charities helping migrants & refugees.
2. Promises jail sentences for individuals or groups who help migrants who are not entitled to submit requests for asylum.

What is at stake at today's vote in #Hungary parliament?
Individuals helping migrants could be criminalized for legitimate activities and could face up to a year in prison. Even being a "suspect" will have a serious personal effect on the lives of people.
@hrw explainer:
And more.. asylum seekers applying to get protection will face new admissibility criteria making it virtually impossible for them to be recognized as refugees, especially without the legal and psycho-social support from independent groups and experts.
NGOs and volunteers who try to challenge this zero protection system, report on abuses at the border and in detention, or provide any form of support will be under constant threat of prosecution. It is already nearly impossible to access critical areas and report on conditions.

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...

Last month I wrote about Viktor #Orban's assault on the hardware of #Hungary's democracy — its constitution, electoral system and judiciary. Here's the follow-up piece on how he's also gone after its "software" — culture, civil society, and education nytimes.com/2018/03/27/wor…
You can see it in the little changes to the textbooks
And in the theaters
